The Abingdon Theological Companion to the Lectionary
begins with the conviction that Scripture speaks first and foremost to Christians now. Its message engages Christian belief and action in the present day. While informed by the best in current biblical studies, its commentary on the Scripture passages of the Revised Common Lectionary
focuses on the questions of Christian life in the world that church members bring to worship. Each entry is co-written by a theologian and homiletician and seeks to answer the questions, "What does this passage say about the gospel and how does it speak to my encounter with God in Christ and my calling as a Christian in the world?"
This volume showcases theological matters that arise from the biblical texts in the lectionary and from the church seasons and special days. This important resource draws upon recent scholarship in various disciplines with a view to enriching the theological contribution of sermons in the years to come.
